YafRay is a very powerful rendering engine.
Check out the Other Software forum for info.

One thing I like about YafRay is that it uses .xml files.
These can be edited in a text editor.
Check out the docs on the YafRay site.
The code is easy to understand.
You can also download a bunch of example .xml files
to learn from.
I actually don’t know yet what advantages I really get with this rendering method - but hey - always nice to have the option.
I’ll list a few here for you to think about.

I suggest that if you really want to learn to use YafRay
then sit down a try and do some really simple stuff just like when you
started out in Blender.
You really need to spend as much time on rendering as you do modeling.
Some goes for making and applying textures.
You dig what I’m saying?
